Weka at Cape Foulwind near Westport on the West Coast New Zealan by Donald Lousley.

While doing a morning shoot very close the restaurant and picnic area on the north beaches of Cape Foulwind, this weka wandered into the picture on cue.

This large brown flightless bird of the rail family is endemic to New Zealand. They are feisty and curious and this made them an easy meal for Māori and early European settlers.

They are also known as the Maori hen or woodhen [Gallirallus australis]

The mouth of the Okari Lagoon is a few minutes drive south of the Cape Foulwind facilities and seal colony, and here we see the morning sun just a few minutes old catching the rocks protecting the farm road.

Two kea playing

Please scroll for purchasing information below the photo

Two kea playing by Donald Lousley.I was with a group of friends, all NZ Dept of Conservation staff or volunteers and when we were leaving Aspiring Hut in the West Matukituki Valley of Mount Aspiring National Park one chilly morning in Nov. 2013 we were “checked out” while opening a gate, by quite a group of kea.

The kea is an alpine parrot found in forested and alpine regions of the South Island of New Zealand and is approx. 48 cm long. Coloured shades of olive and green, and when flying it’s possible to see a magnificent orange colour under its wings.

It has a superb intelligence and with it’s large, narrow, curved, grey-brown upper beak can wreck havoc with tents, car window wipers and a favourite is the soft top of sports cars. In younger birds as per this photo the beak colour is more yellow

Kea Portrait 2 by Donald Lousley. Ever inquisitive it’s often not hard to get close to this intelligent alpine parrot unique to New Zealand, and so often as one will engage us in the great outdoors another will sneak up behind to do mischief to whatever we’ve taken our eyes off of!

Disused Farm House in the Maniatoto by Donald Lousley. A sense of desolation ruled as a couple of us circled this disused house in the dusk of an evening in Jan 2014 with our cameras. Who lived here and what happened to them in this land of the ‘big sky”, extreme summer heat, and winters so dry and cold?
